Keith Smith has his supporters and detractors around here. He has a new home at spotrac and his first article is a great example of what he does better than any nba writer I know. If you ever wondered what a star rookies options are for becoming a free agent off their rookie deal instead of signing an extension he gives a full breakdown. He uses Luka to illustrate the financial options.

I think he's maybe the best cap guy of the writers out there. His sheets when they were public were definitely better than what Sportrac had, so not surprised they brought him on to help with that and write.

I always though Danny LeRoux was the best capologist, but I haven’t head much from him lately. Guess I need to start listening to the “Dunc’d On” podcast again. Anyway, thanks for the link...

Agreed, I think Leroux is the best cap guy. He was with Athletic I thought but haven’t seen him recently there….wonder if he has a book gig or subscription thing?
